Co-op serves up new store for Rogerstone locals


Co-op plans to open a new, larger, convenience store in Rogerstone next week (Friday, 12, February) following a £520,000 investment which will create14 new jobs.

The new 2,500 sq ft store on Tregwilym Road will run on 100% renewable electricity, opening between 6am-10pm daily.

The store includes customer car parking, a bakery, and Costa coffee express, alongside an improved focus on fresh, healthy produce, ready meals and pizzas, award-winning wines, free-from and vegan products, Fairtrade, food-to-go and, everyday essentials.

Students in Rogerstone who are TOTUM cardholders – the new name for NUS extra – can pocket a 10% discount off groceries at the Co-op.

Contactless card payment limits are increased to £45, making it easier, quicker and safer to shop.

Alex Cockburn, Co-op Store Manager, said: “We’re really excited to launch the new Co-op store and create new jobs in Rogerstone. The store has a fantastic new look, increased range and customer car parking – we are very much looking forward to serving the local community.

Greg Yuill, Co-op Area Manager, added: “Co-op is committed to connecting communities and making a difference locally, we have worked to develop the range, choice, products and services that will create a really compelling offer in the community.”

In addition to unlocking additional value and personalised offers, Co-op Members also make a difference to local causes, with Co-op now donating 2% to community causes every time a Member swipes their Membership card when buying own-branded products.

Co-op’s Community Shopping Card makes it easier for those self-isolating or who have been instructed to stay at home to shop and pay for their essentials – cards can be purchased or topped-up by calling 0800 029 4592, enabling friends, families, neighbours or volunteers to shop on their behalf in store.
